5Essentials Survey for Parents

Beginning this month, teachers, parents, and students across Illinois have an opportunity to participate in the annual statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey. The survey is designed to generate a detailed picture of your child’s school and allows you the opportunity to share your thoughts on the important elements of school effectiveness.

This survey gathers data related to five indicators that can predict important student outcomes, including improved attendance and larger test score gains. The five indicators that affect and predict school success are:

  • Involved families

  • Effective leaders

  • Collaborative teachers

  • Supportive environments

  • Quality instruction

Please take a few minutes out of your busy schedule to participate in the parent portion of this survey. It will help us understand the conditions at our school and guide improvement. Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will not be connected to you or your child.

The Illinois 5Essentials Survey will be available until January 18. Thank you for your time and responses!
